.me domains are always taken. It is impossible to register any recent .me drop.
This is the only tld like this. Very strange. Any explanation?
I mean, it can't be explained with high demand.
I bought a few .me domains a few years ago, better than most of current drops,
there was no interest and I dropped them.
(Actually I sold one for low 4 figures. It was cheap.
As usual someone made 5 figures from my 4 figure sale (probably).)

The same thing happens for .app too, even for auctions.

It is with every extension other than .biz, .mobi etc

Either taken or premium registry.

Maybe lots of people taking a bet seeing xyz sales or they are selling quietly and making bank secretly.

If registry think is premium for a drop name they will take & put for sale at high price same thing with biz , co etc..

So, where do we go to register a registry premium .me domain (not aftermarket)?

For example I go to domain.me , they say, it is available, visit one of our partners. I go to those partner registrars, all say, domain taken. But it is not. They just want to get our data before they price the domain, just like greedy registrars who play both sides. But there must be at least one registrar where I can see the price.
This doesn't mean I'm not fan of .me. But it is annoying that all .me are taken including average ones at every registrar, as if there is high demand. .me sounds like selfishness.

yep! I found some great 3 letter .biz domains, but the registrar wanted over $1k for them.

So where do we register a .me domain which is available (, but still taken according to all registrars I check).
